    Production for the three wheeled Elio Motors vehicle in Shreveport will be pushed back from March 2015 to September 2015. 
Back in May NBC 6 first told viewers of how a deal fell through with another major company looking to bring 3,000+ jobs. That company would have used the entire GM plant. 
Commissioners say all parties including Paul Elio, were on the same page. Plans were in the works to place Elio in the old AT&T building on Mansfield road. Once the deal fell through, Elio could get back on track to move into the plant. 

"I'm very optimistic that this is going to happen. Elio Motors will locate here as well as having two-thirds of the facility filled and have jobs and some fruition to Caddo Parish," Caddo Commissioner Ken Epperson said.
